We are about to head south to be a part of New Zealand's PassionFest which runs from Feb 11 to 13 in Waikanae. I actually had never heard of it which is strange because it appears to be NZ's most exciting Christian Festival based around art, justice, food and fun – which makes it very similar to other Christian Festivals that we frequent – SLOT in Poland, Freakstock in Germany, Greenbelt in UK and Cornerstone in USA. BTW – I think I am teaching 3x at Cornerstone.
Last week I was sent an invitation to do something at PassionFest – too late to get on the official program which is already printed – but I said I would come down anyway because it sounded fun and it sounded like my favourite kind of people.
My friend and favourite Anabaptist Stuart Murray Williams is one of the speakers and I always enjoy what he has to say.
So, sometime during the Festival, at a time and location to be announced during the Festival, I will teach a workshop entitled "Blogging For Activists" which will cover the effective use of social media, in particular blogging, for impact and change. I will divulge my SEO secrets and show you how to position your posts to be found on the search engines, the netiquette of conversing online and with commentors, how to improve your online presence and how to weave your various social media streams into something integral. If thats helpful, come along. If not, lets hook up anyway.
